My newest purchase

I'm really excited about my newest purchase. It's the little things right?
I've been wanting a double decker lazy susan spice rack for FOREVER. My mother in law has one and I love it, but she will not give it up. I searched long and hard for one a while back and came up with nothing. Well, a couple of days ago, I came across this beauty, (and yes I said beauty).
I found it online and ordered it from here.  I know its not the most fancy thing out there, 
but it's what I need and have been looking for. 
This little spice rack will finally let me tackle this project...
Pictured above is what I call my "baking cabinet." My hubby calls it a huge mess. Gasp, I guess it kind of is. The funny thing is, is that I think it is completely organized and know where EVERYTHING is in it and what I have to move to get to what I need=) I know which bowls are stacked into which, and how every baking pan needs to be placed in there for the doors to shut!
I have been wanting to re-organize this cabinet for a while, but always talked myself out of it because I know where everything is, and it works for me. As for why the lazy susan, I keep some baking spices in here, and some others in the little cabinets above our stove, which I can't reach, so when I need one of those spices, I will either grab a pair of tongs and grab the spice, which works fine until those spices get all out of sorts and I can't see what I am trying to grab, so then I grab a chair to stand on. Oh the joys of being petite...
Anyways, now that my new little spice rack lazy susan is on its way, I am determined to re-organize this little cabinet, and with some inspiration from Pinterest, I hope for it to look something like this...
Dollar Store Pantry- love that they provide the labels at the end. and the whole website is pretty amazing at organizing tips :) 
At least I would like for all my baking supplies to look like this, 
and then organize all the equipment underneath. 
We shall see.
Wish me luck y'all!
 

Love Becky
